Given the postponement of the March break to April, there have been some changes to the school year calendar.

The four local boards — Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon (CSC Nouvelon), Rainbow District School Board (RDSB), Sudbury Catholic District School Board (SCSDB) and Conseil scolaire public du Grand Nord de l’Ontario (CSPGNO) — have updated the school year calendar for 2020-2021.

The Ministry of Education has postponed the March Break until April 12-16.

As a result, teaching and learning will continue the week of March 15-19.

In addition, the April 19 PA day has been rescheduled to March 19.

The four school boards have worked together to produce a common calendar for many years, facilitating the co-ordination of services such as student transportation.
